Pumpkin - Hi, dear crafting friends. I am back from my 2 trips. I am exhasted, but had a wonderful time in Vegas with my 2 daughters and their families and in Alaska, with my son and his family. I will post photos soon for all to see.

I managed to finish this card for The Sweet Pea Stampers, just before I left. I am not happy with the photos, I just could not get the light like I wanted it.

Our challenge to you this fortnight is Halloween. You don't have to use a Sweet Pea image, but there is an extra prize awarded to a Sweet Pea user. So you would have 2 chances to win with a Sweet Pea image. Now many are also available in digi. I colored

My DP are Pink Paislee, Hocus Pocus. I love the skeleton on this sheet. It was too cute to cut up. I highlighted the skeleton with Cinnamon Stickles.

My image is Ching-Chou Kuik Pick a Pumpkin rubber. Also in Sheet 18, plate 53.

I colored her with Copics and outlined the image and papers with the cinnamon Stickles.

My sentiment is SU. I stamped the image twice, once in purple and once in green, then punched and layered.
